" Mr. Silas Burns Pear Sir : Our Engine and Mills, made
at your shops, have been at worK nearly two months, and
fully meet our expectations. The Engine, as to finish and
strength, performance and durability, is inferior to none
in the State of the same class made here or elsewhere. The
Mills run with a smoothness and speed trulv astonishing.
In ordinary sawiner we cut in a common sized loff. 1 foot, in
8J seconds or 16 feet per minute. We have run, however,
throueh an 18 feet log: in 32 seconds or at the rate of 33 feet
per minute, by running to the top speed we fully believe we
can cut 40 feet per minute. The only objection we have
